How to earn a Dove Awards 2020 prize
Posted On July 7, 2021
An award given out for excellence in journalism in 2020 is to be given to a young Sydney-based journalist for his work on the migrant crisis.
The Sydney Morning Herald, which published the award, was chosen to receive the Dove Awards for its work on issues including journalism, social issues and gender.
The award is to come from a group of Australian journalists, academics and community leaders to help shape the future of journalism in the country.
It is being presented to the Sydney Morning on Wednesday.
Its award-winning work has included an exposé on the impact of a $1.5 billion migrant boat tragedy in the Pacific Ocean in June, highlighting how the tragedy had had a significant impact on the lives of people in Australia’s immigration detention system.
A number of the newspaper’s stories have been picked up by other media outlets and have made headlines around the world.
